sir alex to purchase. Senna - 6 mil and Tevez for 15 mil. . maybe Tomasz Kuszczak too.
1st. Macherano is not coming to Arsenal.
reason is because we have DIABY.
Diaby like ribery is the future of france football.
why would we spend 18million on macherano?
what for? thats what man u and chelsea do.
2nd. the only big signing we will make either now or at the next transfer window will be RIBERY
everyone knows that. OM will not sell him to Lyon
3rd.Robinho baptista torres teves will not be coming to Arsenal.
reason is because we dont need them. if robinho is offered (highly unlikely) wenger will 100% take him.
4th.reyes will go to madrid. its only a matter of time. dont believe wenger or reyes when they denie this. and if robinho is offered 100%
5th. the cole deal will be completed and chelsea will give us gallas plus money.
if they dont we will not sell cole to them but to real madrid.
6th.Abidal might be bought aswell
thats it. real talk.
torres macherano? hahahaha how bout we sign kaka and ronaldinho too.
my brother leaves near ot stadium and has allnetwork of frends who give him correct info. he s a city fan and said sp is lokin for trabelsi and is also interested in kewell. . as red half they r interested only in senna and may b gary mcsheffery(ya saf s crazy signing)
I've been saying Hargreaves to Man U all along. .but have new shock information. Villa want him, but it's ARSENAL that will be making the serious approach. They see Hargreaves as a natural replacement for Vierra, and with Reyes and Cole looking to go any day now the cash is available. Being english is an added and very important bonus. WAIT AND SEE!
Birmingham are set to sign Sunderland's Dean Whitehead the fee is thought to be in the region of 2.5million. Along with the signing of Gary McSheffery from Coventry City for 4million. Birmingham are also keen on Cardiff City's defender Keith Gilbert he could be brought in the region of about 1million. David Sullivan the Birmingham co-owner is a close admirer of Gilbert and would welcome him to the club.
LIVERPOOL NEWS. Kuyt to sign early next week for around 11.5m which will conclude summer transfers. Somoza will not join, especially as he has just joined villareal.
RIBERY WILL JOIN IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS
ARSENAL WILL WAIT FOR THE JANUARY WINDOW TO MAKE ANY MORE BIG SIGNINGS GILBERTO WILL DEPART THEN EXPECT TO SEE EITHER MASCHERANO OR REO-COKER IN ARSENAL COLOURS BY 2007 INCLUDING A LEFT BACK, CENTRE BACK, AND EITHER A GOALIE OR A STRIKER EXPECT 2 OF THEM TO BE SPANISH (CASSILAS AND TORRES)
TRUST ARSENE HE KNOWS HOW TO MAKE SIGNINGS
P.S AS HERNAN CRESPO HAS LEFT CHELSEA SO BIENG CHELSEA THEYLL NEED ANOTHER BLIMIN' STRIKER NOT TORRES I'D SAY MARTINS OF INTER ON A SEASON LONG LOAN!
MAN U ARE TO GET TEVEZ(15 MILLION), SENNA (4MILLION), HARGREAVES (7MILLION)AND MARTINS (10 MILLION AND ARE LOOKING AT THESE PLAYERS TO SIGN IN JANUARY TORRES, NURI SAHIN ,MASCHERANO,ADU AND KERLON (TRUST ME I KNOW THESE THINGS)
I'd just like to say to all the Man U and Chelsea fans to stop getting their hopes up about Torres. He will join Liverpool in jan or next summer. Also, Adriano to Newcastle, ha, I have heard some rubbish in my time but that tops them all.
KLOSE 2 MAN U AND SENNA AND IBRA AND TEVEZ COMING TO MAN U WATCH AND SEE JOKEZ
i have a very good source tellin me that a certain lucas niel could be joining either AC MILAN OR BARCELONA because there managers were very pleased with how he played in the world cup!!???
Alves deal still on, although expect no signs till after the Charity Shield Game. Defoe will sign and Traore will leave for Charlton. Trabelsi could join LFC or Man City depending on whether Alves signs or not. No Kuyt, Villa etc.
Jose Reyes to Real Madrid for 9 million euros, with Julio Baptista or Thomas Gravesen heading to Emirates Stadium. Franck Ribery is Arsene Wengers main target with Marseille set to accept a bid of 13.5 million euros. Wenger also pondering bid for William Gallas, but could easily go for Monaco's Gael Givet. He also wants a left back and another striker, with Juventus striker Trezeguet top of his list. Miroslav Klose is also on that list, with Philipp Lahm as the next Left-Back.
With Crespo moving to Inter Milan this could free the path for Obafemi Martins to leave the San Siro.
Spurs are very interested in him and even tabled a bid after their 2-1 victory over Inter in pre-season. I fully expect another bid to be made shortly.
im not a everton fan but apparently davey moyes will sign 3 or 4 more players before august the 31st = expect gravesen 2 sign in days also andy webster from hearts as he is doubted as the new david weir, the last week of the transfer market moyes will sign david nugent and steed malbranque
pompey 2 sign - anelka + appiah= 15m - shortly
also they are expected 2 sign mattey upson=4.5m
and jefferson farfan=8m
to the guy who said scott brown of hibs is moving to hearts he is perfectly correct i know scott uncle and while most people think he is a hibee he is in fact a die hard jambo and wants to play for them in the champions league. I was also down at tynecaslte yesterday and saw none other than lee martin of manchester united wheater he was jsut looking or going on loan as fergison and mcglyn are friends there could be a loan move on for te promisng youngster
After missing out on John Mensah and Andre Stephan Bikey Reading have turned their interests to Leeds defender Matty Kilgallon.
Everton Fc boss David Moyes is preparing to make a shock bid for YaYa Toure, and may try to sign Steed Melbranque as he is becoming frustrated by Van Der Meyde's fitness and his action off the pitch.
To all you deluded Geordies. .
West Ham have PUBLICLY stated that NO strikers will be sold. .comprendes ????
That means no Ashton (£20m would NOT be enough) or Marlon or Bobby Z.
And Etheringthon on loan to the Blades for a season??? Bwahahahahahaha!!!
At least make the BS possibly plausable!!
West Ham will follow up the signing of George McCartney from Sunderland with EITHER . . Duscher OR Appiah within the next week.
Paintsil- Ferdinand- Gabbidon- Konchesky
Benayoun- Duscher/Appiah- Reo Coker- Etherington
Harewood - Ashton
And then mix and match from. .
Bowyer, Mullins, Mears, C.Cole, Sherringham, Spector, McCartney, Zamora, Noble, Reid, Collins, Dailly, Walker, Bywater, Stokes and Ephraim.
The future is bright, it's claret and blue
Thank you and goodnight.;)
Everton to sell Beats to Newcastle. Graveson to come back to Goodison. Van Der Meyde to be sold. SWP to be loaned to Everton with the option to buy.

The Rat is back to keep you up to date with the latest transfer speculation from the Toon.
Preston and Leeds are both looking at Southend's Freddy Eastwood who it believed could leave Roots Hall for somewhere in the region of £1.3mil.
Whilst Preston's interest in Eastwood has been well documented a move by Leeds could see North End turn their attention back to old boy David Healy who could be surplus to requirements at Elland Road should Eastwood sign.
This news has already alerted Newcastle who would be ready with a 2.5mil bid + future fees for NUGENT. Watch this space. .
Also by the time you read this GRAVESEN will have sealed a 3 year deal with the Toon in the region of £2.7mil.
Expect talks with Dutchmen KUYT and DE MUL to advance before next week.
Also a loan move for MARTINS is now on the cards after Inter secured the signing of Crespo.

Torres to sign for Liverpool in Jan 2007.Luis Garcia will go the other way plus 15 ml.
ARSENAL FANS. . read into it what you will.
A friend of mine has recently finished filming a documentary on the new ground including interviews with Keith Endelman and David Dein. On the off chance I went up to The Emirates stadium with him today whilst he went in to get some shots of the facilities. Who should he see being shown around but Frank Ribery. I dont know if this means a deal is done or a deal is imminent but it bodes well no? Expect Reyes to be ommited from the starting line up tonight so his move to Madrid can be completed. Robinho/Bapstista going nowhere though. Arsenal will take cash.
tottenham wont be signing chimbonda they will put a bid in for neill from blackburn instead
west ham will sign aldo duscher before end of the week,info from chadwell heath training ground.
Everton will snap up Antoine Sibierski from Manchester City on a free transfer. Also coming in will be Thomas Gravesen and possibly Javier Saviola on a year long loan. Everton will then sign him at the end of the season on a free transfer when his contracy expires.
Also, there is talk of a takeover bid from a British based Russian who is offerin Bill Kenwright 80million for the club. He has also pledged 50million pounds for new players. Randy Lerner (also linked with Aston Villa) is also believed to be in the running.
100% true celtic will this week sign petkov and Graveson. However if petrov goes be ready to see him leave for 4mil + Gareth Barry and the big name striker we are seekin is no other than Roy Makaay
Celtic will this week sign Timockek for 5.4 mil and next week wee shall seal the signature of Tommas Graveson
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is being actioned off to the highest bidder, by Juventus. Since he doesn't want to play in Serie B. His transfer fee will therefor probably end up being lower the Juventus initial asking price.
He is most likely to end up at Inter or Milan.
If he ends up at Inter, then Obafemi Martins could be on his way out!?
Manchester United will probably sign Marcos Senna soon. As everyone knows, every world class striker is also being linked to Old Trafford. I would guess that Franck Ribery would be high on SAF's list, now that he's declared that he will not be staying at Marsielle. I'm not sure United will sign a striker at all during this transfer window, the might wait, as SAF might be pretty content with Rooney, Smith, Saha & Solskjear. Another top notch striker would be nice though.
Luca Toni has decided to stay with Fiorentina. Wich will make Milan look even more to Ibrahimovic.
Swedish national keeper Andreas Isaksson looks to be on his way to either Manchester City or Charlton. He would be one of the top keepers in the Premiership. ManCity seems to be closest for 3,5 euro. His present club, Rennes, has lost a few key players during the summer, Alexander Frei and Isakssons good friend Kim Källström.
Some of the posts yesterday were way off the mark. LFC will not be signing Ibrahimovic as he has been priced out. David Villa is not joining either as his fee was the stumbling block. Torres will be a target for Rafa next summer. Kuyt deal is 50-50 as Newcastle are in negotiations. Rafa has told Kuyt's agent to make a formal statement that Kuyt wants to play for the Reds in order to avoid a bidding war. Expect an announcment on Kuyt by next Tuesday. Alves deal is still a possibility from what i've heard around the club. Rafa has asked Parry for January's budget to be used this summer. There will be no signings in January.
sol campbell will not join newcastle he is set 2 join portsmouth soon. also norwich 2 sign freddy eastwood.
Simao Sabrosa finalized negotiations with Valencia CF today. He has said his goodbyes to Benfica and will presented on Saturday when Valencia host AS Roma in an exhibition for the Trofeo Naranja. Meanwhile, as a reaction to the no-show that Roberto Ayala pulled yesterday, Valencia have opened negotiations with Deportivo La Coruna for the transfer of Jorge Andrade. Stuttgart's Fernando Meira is also being looked at. Ayala will be sold in the next two weeks, preferrably to a club outside of Spain. The cost of Simao (15 million Euros +) and the possible cost of Andrade (Depor are asking for 15 million, though Valencia think they can get him for 8-10) will make the purchase of a striker financially difficult. Obafemi Martins could cost 17.5 million Euros or more and Luis Garcia of Espanyol is being valued at 15 million Euros (again Valencia think they can push it to 8-10). Negotiations for Andrade could force VCF to think smaller in the striker market.
It is said that Ayala will be moving to Man U to increase the defensive power that Man U baddly needs
